For the dog lovers! @jk_cpdrawing drew this adorable pup with colored pencils on Strathmore Bristol paper. Who wants to smush his cute little face? 🙋‍♂️ About Bristol Paper:
✔️Bristol generally describes a drawing paper that is pasted to form multi-ply sheets. Bristol sheets provide a stiff, strong surface to work on without the need for mounting. ✔️The term Bristol derives from the early days of European papermaking when mills would send their finest papers to Bristol, England to be pasted together. ✔️Bristol papers generally have two types of surfaces: smooth and vellum.
Smooth = great for pen & ink, mechanical pencil, airbrush, markers, and fine detail drawings. There is little to no tooth, making these surfaces great for creating fine line or marker drawings.
Vellum = great for graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, pastel, and crayon. The surface has peaks and valleys which grab dry media such as graphite. More even shading and deeper tones can be achieved on a vellum surface.
We recommend trying both surfaces to see what suits your style best.

From Reid: "I have been inspired by a property that slopes down into dense woods for a while, I made this design up on the fly for that property."⠀
